Welcome to Bures CEVC Primary School and Nursery



Through exciting and adventurous learning experiences within a healthy, safe and dynamic environment we help everyone in our community to realise their limitless potential.

With a strong Christian ethos, we promote belief and faith in ourselves and others, courageously sharing, caring, and forgiving whilst celebrating both our similarities and differences.

We challenge pupils to become life-long learners who have the confidence, self-esteem, resilience and desire to achieve excellence in all they do.

Explore. Believe. Shine.
